The Public Relations Degree Program began in 1978, and the program's baccalaureate degree holders now exceed several thousand graduates who are working throughout the United States in a range of professional positions. The UNI Chapter of the Public Relations Student Society of America has won several "Outstanding Chapter" awards and the student-run public relations agency has been named the international chapter firm in multiple times. The Public Relation program's in-house PR firm, Strategic PR, gives students opportunities to work on real public relations campaigns for local organizations.
Four UNI Public Relations students represented UNI's PRSSA Chapter at the 2019 national PRSSA convention in San Diego. "I had the opportunity to have personal discussions with the PRSSA Secretary and Treasurer Officers. Through these discussions, I learned more about creative fundraising ideas as well as the idea of implementing a mentoring program into our local chapter," said McKenna Beaty, senior Public Relations major.
